Are you smarter than a computer? See if you can find your algo-rhythm in this byte-sized artificial intelligence (AI) quiz.

#1. Which of the following is NOT a famous AI platform?

ChatGPT, Midjourney, and DALL-E are all examples of generative AI models that can create content, like text or images, in a human-like manner. Pink Floyd is a rock band!

#2. When did an AI first defeat a human world-champion chess player?

IBM’s AI program called Deep Blue defeated world chess champion Garry Kasparov in 1997. This demonstrated the potential of AI to master complex strategy games.

#3. What is required for an AI model to learn how to draw like a human?

There are lots of different ways that AIs learn about pictures, but they all depend on having lots of pictures to start with. That shouldn’t be surprising – we humans learn from looking at pictures too!

#4. True or false? Proposed in 1985, the Turing Test tests whether an AI can beat humans at a collection of games and puzzles.

False. Also called the Imitation Game, the Turing Test assesses AI intelligence by the way it carries on a conversation over text. If a human cannot tell that they are talking to a machine, then the AI passes the Turing Test.

#5. Which of the following should not be performed by AI?

AI has serious limitations in areas that involve complex human emotions, ethical judgements, and nuanced decision-making – like sentencing criminals.

Was I right?

Oh dear! Better brush up before the next quiz!

    This quiz is about AI but it was written by humans. However, we did ask an AI to generate some relevant AI topics, which informed our question design.
